Need help pls pls pls pls pls

I need help guys, I just finished cleaning my 2014 almost new black mustang and when I saw it in the sun it has light swirls all over it :bang head:

I have never detailed a car before but I am willing to spend the money and buy all the products to do it right now! I cannot see my car like that this is driving me crazy right now

Can anyone please give me a list of all the products I need to buy? I would prefer products that can be purchase at pep boys or any other local store because I would like to do the detail right now if possible.

Pls help

You may get more visits to your threads by including more details...

My new 2012 had these weird spots on it. Not swirls, but they almost looked like amebas or eye floaters.

Point is, there is a warranty on the paint. If it is something they did wrong, they will fix it.

This is what I do.
Go to the best local detailer. Preferably one who deals in high end cars. Spend the $250+ and let them do it.

Or you could spend half that on a buffer/polisher and compounds and do it yourself.

Results of my first time using a DA polisher. Bought one off amazon for less than $150, used a 5 inch backing plate, and an Orange Medium Cut Hexpad, with v36 from Chemical guys. Here is a before/after on my Front fender. Again, my first time using a DA and it got out 90% of the swirls over the entire car. I'd advise going this route.

I am right now watching some guides on how to do it myself.

Look for this guy on youtube, he is really good and have good knowledge of car waxing, Junkman2000


But base on all the thing I am going to need I will end up spending nearly 300 :/

Yeah, Honestly once you get the basic technique down, all it really takes is time. It takes a few minutes for each section to let the product properly break down. But once you get the hang of it, You'll be extremely satisfied with the results.

Edit: all the products I listed combined was like $200 off amazon. Pair that with a stack of microfibers, and you're at maybe $210 for everything. Plus, The v36 goes a long way. I might've used a quarter of a bottle on my entire car.

Pay attention to the technique. That's more important than your machine or products.

Also realize you will absolutely need patience. When I've polished my entire car it took in total 10-12 hours. That's one stage. I could have gone a second with my lighter polish for more pop, but I didn't have the time.

Then the last thing is: Find out what you're doing to your car that causes those swirls and stop doing it.

Go to YouTube and watch the Chemical Guys videos. Very helpful. They make a great product as well.

Guys,

Thank you so much for all the support and advice

I ended up paying 200.00 for a detail, I went to hight end place here in Miami. They mostly do Mercedes, Ferrari and things like that.

Now my car looks like brand new but of douse I will buy my own tools and do it my self next time.

Good call. Glad it worked out.
I am almost always on the do it urself bandwagon, but black is the toughest to polish (and shoot btw).
I would have done just what u did.

I feel your pain. My car is black as well and in desperate need of a detail. I picked up a d/a and pads. Probably going to wait until the spring to do the work though

What type of DA?
Meguiar's ultimate? Like off the shelf or the professional m105/205.

Then the biggest thing, what techniques are you using and how long are you staying on each pass?

It could be because of any of those.
